Google and YouTube are my greatest allies in finding incredibly good videos for travel.
On Youtube search for Rick Steves travel videos. Over 100 are there.
Many video Vlogs are also found. Some are excellent, so well not so good. It is worth the effort to search. I found many of markets in Rome had videos of excellent qualtiy which I enjoyed with my wife.
You can see soe of the variety of the Vlogs.
It is always good to get a planning map. You can get some great city are country maps for free by going to Frommers web site. The link below will take you to a list of all of their maps.
They ahave published some great guide books. Most are also available in the kindle format. I encourage you to take a look at their web site.
This map is available in the Frommers Rome and Italy guide books.
